We Were Near The Hill

Falklands 82

We Were Near The Hill


And through the smoke,

Amidst the battles thrall.

I heard a comrade speak!

It warmed my heart,

and quelled, the fear,

that lay ........deep inside.

And, it did make me laugh…

“Where the fucking hell have you been?” he said!

As shells rained down and bullets flew.

“I got lost,” I said...


… In the gully at Darwin in 82.
